Expand Your Tentacles With Northern California’s Sinister Creature Con
All horror fans love a round of the good old horror convention circuit. Filled to the brim with horror vendors, celebrities and icons; there is something for every horror fan. Los Angeles has had their fair share of these types of events with ScareLA, Midsummer Scream and Monsterpalooza, so it is only natural that Northern California get a taste of the blood.
The Sinister Creature Con boats a massive collection of horror genre craftsman that give monsters their proper title. Painters, filmmakers, sculptors, tattoo artists, comic book artists, graphic designers, practical FX companies, actors, writers, haunted attraction engineers are all collectively part of this festival. What really gets my blood flowing is the nostalgic aspect of this event. The best element? This horror convention is not just geared towards celebrities but rather those that work aimlessly behind the scenes to make monster movie magic.
